In reply to joining research studies, any opinions?, posted by CarolAnn on December 6, 1999, at 14:54:55

> Just found out there is a Clinical Research facility here in Orlando that is currently screening for participants, in various Antidepressant trials. I'm thinking about trying to get in one of the studies(particularly one on patients who have not responded to any past medications). I see my Pdoc tomorrow and am going to mention it to him, but I would very much appreciate all opinions or advise any of you has to offer. Thanx!CarolAnn

Possibility of getting on a drug that works.
Free evaluations and tests.
Free follow-up.
Free medicine.
Encouragement to stay with treatment. We often quit early due to side effects. Maybe the dedication to endure has merit.

If the drug works, maybe it's not available when the trial is finished.
Might get stuck with a palcebo. Not cool if you're in desperate need of relief, unless of course you have a placebo effect.
Drug might not work, have intolerable side effects, or make things worse.
No options of adding augmentors, combinations, or side effect remedies.
